Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app 'Manage Product Master Data'
  2. Click on button "Adapt Filters"
  3. Search for 'Serial Number Profile'
  4. Click Select
  5. Press button OK
  6. In the Field , input a 'Serial Number Profile' 
  7. Press button Go
  8. Search results show message 'No data found. Try adjusting the search or filter parameters.'


The 'Serial Number Profile'  which is displayed in the Adapt filter window is not 'Serial Number Profile' ( MARC-SERNP ) found on the Plant Facet View but the field  ( MARA-SERIAL ) which is Extended Warehouse Management Specific.


                                                                      Serial Number Profile field used by Filter in Manage Product Master Data

The filter bar generally supports only fields that can be mapped to only one material.

Plant specific fields are not possible for this functionality

The ERP serialnumber profile (MARC - SERNP) defines a serialnumber requirement per document/business process. The EWM serial number profile (MARA - SERIAL) defines the serial number requirement level: serial numbers on stock, serial numbers on warehouse number level, serial numbers for document item.


System works as Designed

To search for products by 'Serial Number Profile'  (  MARC-SERNP ) , please consider using the following workaround :

  1. Open app Export Master Data
  2. Input Serial Number Profile (MARC-SERNP) in the 'field Select Specific Fields'
  3. In the 'By Selection Criteria'  section - input the Serial Number you want to filter by
  4. Press button 'Export'
